Where does harassment begin and stupidity end? So is the community saying that they rather play with idiots who fed, are generally bad at the game and doesn't listen/talk, over someone who knows what they are doing, but responds poorly to someone of lesser skill level by verbal abuse.... over the internet...

There was an old saying "sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me?" of course that's not always true, and words do hurt sometimes. But uh, so does idiotic gameplay that is giving you a lose for no good reason. Or just plain bad communication.

Personally, just add a ignore feature. that stops harassment right then and there. And ideally, add a blacklist to blacklist people you don't want to play on your team. Of course you can't black list your opponents as this can be abused. This will be a lot better then reviewing every single report and case and warning/tempbanning and banning accounts. Your spending a whole lot of work for a 1/2 ass solution.

Doesn't matter,pay or did not pay, everyone is treated equally. When you pay ANY game company for a digital good like an item in the game, the item does not actually belong to you, you simply bought the right to use the item in the game and that right CAN be revoked at any time for ANY reason. It depends on the company. Since Riot is a nice company, they check the consistency of the reports before they actually ban. (Well this was in the RuneScape [Dont' judge me] ToS so I assumed it would be similar to Riot's ToS even though I haven't read it yet.)

You are correct. The LoL ToS does depict this. Purchased goods are not the property of the purchaser. Riot don't even have to refund the buyer in most cases, they probably just would out of good customer service. The ToS protect RIOTs ability to do as they please with their intellectual property.

Long as people that pay big bucks, yet feel like they can abuse people who havent yet, get the same treatment. I had one guy say he spent over 600 buck on here and he called me all kinds of nasty cursewords, and was very abusive.
